Summer Cricket Academy 2021

 

 

 

SUMMER TERM ACADEMY SESSION DATES 2021

I am very proud to say that AJ Coaching Cricket Academy has enjoyed four very successful seasons in the NEC league now called the Surrey Junior Cricket Championship and to build on that we will be continuing the outdoor coaching programme again in 2021. 2020 season has been a very busy one despite the uncertainty due to Covid-19 with lot’s of intra-squad games and friendlies.

Dundonald Recreation Ground in Wimbledon remains to be our primary home ground and will be the venue for the summer cricket academy on Saturday mornings in 2021.

At this point, I am really pleased to announce a major development. AJ Coaching Cricket Academy and Morden Cricket Club will usher in the new season with a joint partnership.

As many of you know, I have been trying to secure a ground for the club for a few years now. Through numerous conversations and meetings with the council, both clubs have identified the opportunity to form a strategic alliance to enable both parties to grow and flourish going forward.

By having AJ Academy based at Morden Park sports ground and working closely with Morden Cricket Club, it will not only give our junior cricketers a permanent base but it also creates opportunities for them to progress into senior cricket. Talks are also in progress to install outdoor cricket nets.

The Academy will still use Dundonald Park for and Richard Challoner to spread out the matches as well as having different age groups play at the same time.

Each age group will play competitive matches for which the relevant coaches work together to select an appropriate team. This is based on our knowledge of the skills, focus, discipline and confidence of our players, as well as the opposition. It is not in anyone’s interest to have a mismatched game. We want to encourage junior players of all abilities in and play recreational as well as competitive cricket. We love to see players develop and progress and every child is on this cricket journey when they join us. Your children are joining AJCCA for the outstanding and dedicated coaching rather than a guarantee of being included in league fixtures only.

I place a lot of emphasis on children learning the basics well, and that involves drills. Playing games is part of the learning experience but essentially your children are joining AJ Coaching Cricket Academy for outstanding coaching. That said, I aim to ensure that match practice and coaching go hand in hand throughout the season and my aim is to schedule more friendlies to provide as many opportunities as possible for the emerging talent.

Please be advised that AJ Coaching reserves the right to cancel any course should the number of children attending not cover the course running costs. Very occasionally we’ve had to make last minute changes to venues and timings due to matters outside of our control. We make every effort to contact our customers by email, text or phone in the event of any changes.

The total size of each course is only limited by the venue and number of coaches I have available. The participants  will be grouped to ensure that your child gets the best possible attention. We pride ourselves on getting the best out of each child and we make this possible by keeping the ratio of coach to cricketer small. The ratio is never more than 1:10 but is often much smaller than that, especially when coaching our younger members.

The new AJ kit will be available for all children to wear for training and fixtures. Please click on the link below to purchase the new AJ kit from AJ Sports.
